I appreciate your detailed response. I value the opinion of forum members such as yourself, and Raster, but you’re right in that each individual is free to choose whether to eat something or not, without fear of being smacked or scolded. I have no fear in trying different things, though I’m trying to be cautious. I just wanted to get other opinions on this particular product. In fact, the website Lauren linked to states that organic cacao is extremely beneficial and does not contain high-levels of caffeine. Anyway, at the end of the day, it’s up to each of us to make that choice. Thanks for your input.
